5 Big Dividend Payers With Rising Share Prices

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Top yielding stocks trending higher in price is the gold standard in investing. One of the motivating reasons people self-direct their portfolio is to outperform the big money managers.

We all know it's not easy to find high yielding stocks that are also increasing in price, but here is a list of stocks doing just that.

I begin by reviewing companies I already either trade or follow and have a large dividend. I add in a screen for large yield stocks and add the ones that meet the following criteria:

  • Easy to get in and out of with lots of liquidity, and trade with a small bid-ask spread to avoid slippage
  • The company must have a solid history of dividends with the earnings to pay them
  • I must believe the company will continue paying the current dividend or more
  • The chart pattern must be moving from the bottom left to the top right; there is no point in looking for an oversized yield if the shares are expected to drop as much or more in the next year
  • How does an investor use this list of dividend stock ideas? This should be your starting point, not an end-all for your research. Make sure the industry and the company is a match for your investment objectives. Use your current professional knowledge as applicable to garner a market edge when entering or exiting a position.
